Our patrons agree …

“TKD is a small place but all the plays I’ve seen there have been very entertaining. Good things come in small packages sometimes and this is one. … I’ve told my friends and would recommend to anyone.”

Patricia Purkey


“Saw the play God of Carnage last night. It was a fantastic side-splitting performance. It is a true reflection of life raising children and dealing with neighbors.”

Jim Wharton


“This is a great theatre. The last show I saw, Every Christmas Story Ever Told …, was amazing and extremely well acted. It is a small venue that makes the show seem more personal and like you are the focus of the actors’ attention.”

Nicholas Stroud


“My husband and I love this place for our date nights. We both have enjoyed so many of the plays, most recently On Golden Pond. Can’t wait for the new location!”
Cat Seagle Scussel


“Just saw Sordid Lives as my first TKD production – small, quaint theater with amazing talent!”
Andrew Kruer


“My boyfriend and I have been attending plays at TKD for over the last year and a half. We always look forward to being completely captivated by the experience whether we’re seeing a dramatic tear-evoking show or a comical gut-busting parody. It’s never just a date. It’s always a full experience that is inevitably followed by colorful conversation and analysis. While performances at larger theaters are enjoyable, there is a certain intimacy at TKD that is impossible to find elsewhere.”
